New Delhi: The National-Award winning star Akshay Kumar's latest venture 'PadMan' is faring well at the Box Office. The film has clicked with the masses as it addresses an important issue of menstrual hygiene.
The film stars Akshay in the lead with Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in pivotal parts. Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the figures.
The film is based on the real-life incident of Arunachalam Muruganantham—the man whose initiative to invent low-cost sanitary pad making machines in rural India helped not only his wife but other women in his village to lead a hygienic life.
'PadMan' is produced by Akki's better half Twinkle Khanna, making it her maiden production venture. Interestingly, Twinkle had mentioned about the story of 'Padman' aka Arunachalam in the final short story titled ‘The Sanitary Man from A Sacred Land’ in her second novel ‘The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad’.
The film hit the screens on February 9, 2018.
